NOTES FROM THE CALL:
The PMP examination is based on version 4 of the Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBoK). This month’s PMP Study call concludes a 14-part series that used a vertical Process Group point-of-view to examine the 42 processes described in the PMBOK. In this session, we will focus on the final communications, risk, procurement processes in the Monitoring & Controlling Process Group. Then we will close out the series by discussing the integration and procurement management processes in the Closing Process Group, as laid out in PMBOK version 4. Dana Safford, PMP, will provide insight and practical examples of everything you need to know to building your critical knowledge mass and pass the PMP exam on the first attempt.
